The Joker's Real Name Seemingly Revealed In The Pages Of DC's FLASHPOINT BEYOND #5

We may finally have an answer to one of the biggest mysteries in all of comic books. In the pages of Flashpoint Beyond issue #5, iconic Batman villain The Joker's real name is seemingly revealed...

Although the character has been named in other mediums (Jack Napier in Tim Burton's Batman, for example), The Joker's true name has always been a mystery in the comic books... until now.

In this week's Flashpoint Beyond #5, the iconic Batman villain's name is revealed to be Jack Oswald White.

In the previous issue, it comes to light that the mysterious Clockwork Killer is none other than Martha Wayne, who had taken the mantle of the Joker in the Flashpoint Universe. The Dark Knight (Thomas Wayne) confronts his wife in Arkham Asylum, where she admits to killing Psycho Pirate after he told her some mind-blowing pieces of information.

In addition to finding out that their son, Bruce, is the Batman of the DC Universe proper, Martha learns that the Joker was "a failed comedian with a wife and child, stuck in a menial job cleaning the bathrooms at Wayne Casino."

Martha then explains that she intends to travel back in time to ensure their son lives to become Batman after the events of Crime Alley.

It's worth noting the version of the Joker Martha is referring to exists in an alternate universe, which means our original Clown Prince of Crime may have a different name entirely - that said, we do know that many of the characters in the Flashpoint Beyond miniseries share the same names as their Earth-Prime counterparts.

What do you guys think? does The Joker share a name with the lead singer of The White Stripes, or is this a misdirect? Drop us a comment down below.
